"Peace Should be Integral to Women's March" by Cindy Sheehan and Rick Sterling

...."The escalating military budget is driving our country further and further into debt. Meanwhile infrastructure is decaying, health care and housing is diminishing and education is underfunded. College students now graduate with astronomical student debt. Meanwhile there is growing police oppression.

We must include PEACE in our march because unless we can stop the trend, a nuclear war is going to destroy civilization.  There is no such thing as a winnable nuclear war. Resisting the war machine and dismantling ALL nukes should be essential elements in our activism. The continuity of human life on our planet is at stake. These are Women's issues. 

As we demand a change in tone and behavior in the White House, we must also demand a change in US international foreign policy away from militarism and aggression. 

The demand for peace not war should be integral to the Women’s March."
